Laura Cottingham: "Not for Sale" (1998).
Laura Cottingham (USA * 1963)
"'Not For Sale' introduces and reintroduces some of the art, artists, and activities of the Feminist Art Movement. Many contemporary artistic strategies and modes of production that are taken for granted in the 1990s - including video and performance work, activist-based practices, collective art efforts, sculpture and painting that incorporate materials and processes previously dismissed as craft, autobiography as subject, archival-based installations and explorations in identity politics - were first introduced and championed within the broad based aesthetics and practices that constituted the Feminist Art Movement." (Laura Cottingham, 1998)
Laura Cottingham is primarily a critic and a filmmaker. She celebrated her debut with her first documentary film "Not For Sale" in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She recently published a book about Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who greatly influenced her work.
